Snowstorm today!!
 
Surprised there's no threads open for this....Biggest snowstorm by far since the start of "winter"...My GF had to work this morning and the roads were not cleared at all at 8:30...I don't know what took them so long. They finally cleared my road (in Little Italy) at about 10-10:30.

Was gonna go see the fam in Montreal for the weekend but got snowed in at home here in old Peterborough

I don't drive so I can't comment on that aspect, but as someone who takes the train/metro/bus in to work, I was really impressed by the service. I left at my usual time and actually got to work earlier than I normally do.

Fingers crossed for the ride home at 5...

I agree, normally they're very quick at clearing away the streets during a storm, but it's almost like they started late today. Maybe we were just the last streets to be cleared...My GF finally found a snowplough to follow on Jean Talon ouest at 8:30am..lol

Goldthorpe 12-27-2012 11:54 AM

That's a lot of snow.

Natey 12-27-2012 11:56 AM

Just took me an hour to clear out my driveway.. and my driveway really isn't that big.

coolasprICE 12-27-2012 11:59 AM

I am amusing myself taking in all the action on my street, as 1 brave soul after the other attempt to accomplish the impossible - drive through a street that hasn't been plowed yet... ****ing hilarious... as I sip my coco it is truly entertaining to watch the community work together and help 1 brave moron after the other during these holidays.

Average stuck time seems to be about 40 minutes.

The best part is most of the cars are civic and corollas..

Maybe I should be a good Samaritan, put my boots on and grab a shovel?

Meh.. maybe not...lolz

I take the public transit as well and also got into work earlier than usual.

So stupid that I have to work today and tomorrow though. No work to do, no customers to reach, no shipping companies open. All I've done today is watch the US/Germany game and look out the window every two minutes, saying, "Wow, it's getting ugly out there."

Time better served staying in bed.

ThaDevilGirl 12-27-2012 12:15 PM

We're at 33 cm at Dorval airport and still going strong. I was expecting 20-30 cm. We can definitely get 40 cm lol

coolasprICE 12-27-2012 12:16 PM

serious question for all of you that have driven on the roads today, particularly from west island to Montreal...

say if I left in an hour from Decarie (snowdon, ndg area), how long would it take to drive to Hudson, Quebec?

Aspirine 12-27-2012 12:23 PM

Kinda big.

I'd avoid it if possible if I were you. With the wind and blowing snow it's pretty bad out there. Zero visibility.

I just stepped out for lunch and for a minute there I wondered if I'd make it back lol.

EmelinHipCheck 12-27-2012 12:25 PM

Called at work to see if they can cancel my shift, they insist on me coming in for a 4 hours shift tonight :help:.

today is the only day of the year I wish I was paying +600$ a month and 10K a year on Gas for a 4 x 4 suv/truck

Jigger77 12-27-2012 12:47 PM

Apparently the 40 is closed now East of Montreal because of a multiple vehicle pile-up.

waffledave 12-27-2012 12:50 PM

It took me almost 90 minutes to get to work...I live in St-Henri, work downtown, 3 metro stops away. Took me over an hour to walk to the metro from my place, a walk I've done in 4 minutes before. No snow was cleared, anywhere...The wind made all the snow pile up to waist high levels. At one point, I almost decided to just fall over and die, but then I changed my mind.

I have a Rav4 and pay neither of those amounts.

Rav4's are great and efficient.. but payments are not 500 or so?

Jigger77 12-27-2012 12:58 PM

15 North is closed now due to too much snow.

15 north starting from where?

FrankMTL 12-27-2012 01:06 PM

I just went out to shovel..it's pretty bad out there. This is where i'm happy that I pay 50$ a month for a parking lot right beside my building (Little Italy)..and I only pay during the 4 months of winter...

Those parking on the streets are gonna have a tough time finding parking tonight.

Not sure. I heard it on am 730.

Luiginho 12-27-2012 01:19 PM

This may be the biggest storm we've had in the past 3 years.

Theosis 12-27-2012 01:20 PM

It's pretty terrible out there... Took my neighbor about 45 minutes for him to get out of his driveway and out of our crescent...

Kept getting stuck in the snow since it hasn't been plowed. Would back up and go forward and get a few inches further and then back up again... and so on :laugh:
